Agree with much of what you say; my point of quibble is with the term 'my music,' as I see a performance as just that: the performer and the crowd enter into an agreement to be there that at some level implies consent for sharing. I can take my memory, and if I taped from the soundboard with permission at the time, that too. I agree that soundboards produced entirely by the crew and the band are the property of the band.

I just see that the connection between the crowd and the performer in a concert setting is more substantive than it is for a painting, stage production or a football game. A fine line and a slippery slope to be sure.

Absolutely...cannot wait to find out my shns and CDs are a thing of the past and I have to burn a whole new set of materials for the new age dawning...

Hey--maybe I can sue someone for the implication that my downloads had value (implied because they limit my access) when burned as CDs with wavs.
